Abstract Submission Instructions PDF

Overview
As the move towards value-based healthcare continues, it is critical that members of the cardiovascular community engage around quality improvement and cost reduction strategies. While substantial efforts are underway at institutions around the country, there exists little opportunity for leaders in cardiovascular medicine to share and obtain feedback on their value-based efforts. As a forum for medical, operational, and finance leaders, the Cardiovascular (CV) Summit represents an ideal venue to fill this unmet need. To this end, a practical dissemination and implementation science poster session will occur at the 2018 CV Summit.

Aims

  • Engage cardiovascular team members in the process of delivering value-based care
  • Share and celebrate practical quality improvement and/or cost reduction strategies
  • Encourage dissemination and implementation of evidence-based interventions that can be applied in clinical practice
  • Facilitate networking for those interested in value-based health care

Abstracts Can Be Submitted By:
All attendees of the 2019 CV Summit including:

  • Physicians (Fellows-in-Training, Early Career Professionals, Fellows of the American College of Cardiology)
  • CV Team members (nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants)
  • Cardiovascular administrators/executives
  • CV Summit external sponsors and exhibitors

Poster Presentation Categories:

  1. Value-based care (Delivery of care where reimbursement is based on patient health outcomes)
  2. Quality improvement (Systematic and continuous actions leading to measurable improvement in health care service and/or health status)
  3. Cost reduction (Processes to reduce health care expenditures)
  4. Implementation science (Study of methods to promote the adoption and integration of evidence-based practices/interventions into health care)
  5. Business of cardiology/ Care delivery (Operational, administrative and financial processes to improve health care delivery)

Sample Presentation Topics:

  • Improving delivery and/or adherence to guideline directed care
  • Effective management of population health
  • Effective utilization of advanced practice providers (APPs) or novel physician staffing models
  • Development of compensation models that better accommodate the shift from volume to value or increase provider engagement/satisfaction
  • How best to incorporate the Quality Payment Program (MACRA) into clinical practice
  • Efficient approaches to streamlining coding/billing
  • Techniques for navigating Stark Law
  • Development and nurturing of specialty or outreach clinics
  • Interventions for reducing provider burnout

All posters should adhere to the following overall format: background and objective, methods, results, conclusions. Suggestions for the types of content for each section are below (adapted from the Institute for Healthcare Improvement National Forum Storyboard Handbook). These are not inclusive nor must all this information be included in every case:

  1. Background and objective:
    1. A clearly defined Aim Statement stating the problem and theexpected change (including time to expected change).
  2. Methods:
    1. An overview of project design/strategy for change that explains how the aim was achieved.
    2. An explanation of the changes made to achieve improvement in the targeted process.
    3. An indication of how interventions were tested and/or adapted to the local environment/organization prior to implementation.
    4. A description of the measures used to show improvement and how they were applied.
    5. A listing of the multi-disciplinary team that was involved in achieving improvement (elements may include: content experts, patients, leadership, etc.)
  3. Results:
    1. Tabular representation of data pre- and post-initiative
    2. Graphical representation of improvement. The use of tools such as annotated run charts or Shewhart control charts is preferred to demonstrate the performance of data over time.
    3. A demonstrated sustainability in improvement
    4. Critical facilitators and barriers to change (required)
  4. Conclusions
    1. A short summary of the lessons learned from the work and/or the message for attendees/readers.
  5. Other:
    1. A listing of contact information for the author(s) of the poster.
    2. Disclosure of relationships with industry

Best Poster Award:

  • All of the displayed posters will automatically be entered into an on-site competition for best poster award/ribbon.

Timing:

  • Posters will be displayed in meeting space foyer at the CV Summit throughout the day on February 15th, 2019. Poster presenters will have an opportunity to discuss their work with attendees during an extended break on that day.

Publication:

  • PDF versions of posters will be distributed as part of an online toolkit/supplement to the CV Summit available to all attendees. To accommodate this, we will ask that all poster presenters submit their poster one week prior to the start of the 2019 CV Summit.
